Provident Barometer: Poles to spend more on Easter than last year


This year, Poles are planning to spend an average of PLN 599 on Easter. This is PLN 64 more than last year. More than half of them expect Easter to be more expensive for them this spring than in previous years. According to Provident’s periodical Barometer survey, as many as 92.4 % of respondents who admitted that this year’s Easter will be more expensive for them cited inflation and rising product prices as the main reason. This is confirmed by data from the Central Statistical Office, according to which commodity prices in February 2023, compared to the analogical month last year, increased by 18.4 %. 

“Spending on this year’s Easter, despite high inflation, did not increase significantly compared to last year but only by PLN 64”, says Karolina Łuczak, spokeswoman for Provident Polska. “However, this year, Poles are aware of the price rise, and they are planning to save more and watch their spending”, she adds.

According to the Provident Barometer, one in five respondents does not intend to incur higher costs during this year’s Easter. Among them, 31% are planning to save on products and buy cheaper substitutes, while 32.4 % will not buy all the products they need. Nearly one in four will not organize Easter altogether, which naturally minimises costs, and one in five will spend this year’s festivities in a smaller group.

As many as 71.5 % of Poles, regardless of whether they anticipate their Easter budget to increase, intend to save on products and watch prices more closely this year at Easter. 

According to Provident’s Barometer survey, as in previous years, eggs and white sausage will reign supreme on Polish tables, with 89.2% and 61.3% of consumers tasting them respectively. They are followed by sour rye soup, which once again wins over the second most popular soup, white borscht. “Rye soup is an indispensable soup on the tables of more than half of Poles, while borscht is prepared by as many as 18 % fewer respondents”, adds Karolina Łuczak.
